Meeting with an Agent – Fazendin encourages you to contact one of our agents. Your agent will handle every detail from beginning to end, and those details are constantly changing. You need a professional who stays knowledgeable and knows the ins and outs of all of the different facets of getting your home sold.
Staging and Décor – We know how important this step is to selling your home. We provide staging recommendations at no cost to you. A checklist of tried and true decorating ideas will be provided to you to make your home neutral and appeal to a broad range of potential buyers. It is helpful to have an outside source in making recommendations on de-cluttering, depersonalizing and de-emotionalizing throughout this process.
Professional Photographer – Pictures allow people to decide if your home may be a good fit. It is vital to have quality, professional photos for all listings. We hire the best photography team in the industry to showcase your home in the best possible photos.
Pricing – With our years of experience, we have a variety of methods to evaluate and obtain proper pricing. Homes priced correctly sell more quickly. We offer data and facts to help you see how we arrived at our suggestion. This is a process that you and your agent work through together.
Listing Your Home – Your listing will get the maximum exposure from being on the MLS (Multiple Listing Service). We also do marketing brochures and flyers so people will remember your listing.
Marketing – Every company will tell you their marketing strategies. Fazendin does it differently than anyone else in the industry because the company pays for the marketing of your listing. We know how important exposure is to getting your home sold, so we ensure that all options are utilized. These options range from e-mails, to websites, mailings, advertisings, open houses and more. The choices are varied – we set a plan and implement that plan for you and evaluate as we go.
When an Offer is Received – Your agent will present, clarify and discuss the options with you. Agents are trained and have experience in helping you think through all the parameters. They will be your advocate in negotiations.
When an Offer is Accepted and Received – The agent can recommend a reputable Title Company to assist you in preparing for the closing.
A Successful Closing – Your agent will be at the closing table. We pride ourselves on guiding you through every step of the home selling process!
Communication – This is the common thread through every step of selling your home. Your agent will be in constant communication with you via your preferred method (phone, e-mail, text, etc.) so that you are in the know about every step of the process. When you choose a Fazendin agent, you are choosing a partner to assist from beginning to end.
Some Tips You May Never Have Thought About:
- Think of your senses – sight (how’s the lighting?), smell (are there cookies coming out of the oven?), sound (soft background music) – all of these can make a difference when people come to tour your listing.
- Curb appeal – how does your home look when you drive up for the first time?
- Are the windows clean? What a difference this can make!
- Set the table – make it look livable and inviting.
- Be ready to leave your home in a tidy condition so people can come and tour.
These are just a few of the details that our agents do on a daily basis with their clients – let an expert help you. Between the paperwork, the marketing options available and your home preparations, Fazendin agents know how to help you get your home sold quickly and for the best possible price. Our records speak for themselves – the Twin Cities real estate industry sold rate for listings in 2015 was 73%; while Fazendin proudly sold 89% of our listing during the same time!!!
